There are no surprises at all in this totally predictable mistake of a movie.

Director Mike Figgis also composed the score, which during the tense scenes merely sounds like a two-year-old incessantly banging on random piano keys.

Supremely listless and scare-free nonsense.

Figgis relies on Quaid's performance to convey the perilous dynamics of his character's threatened masculinity, and the performance produced by this trust is solid gold.

The movie builds atmosphere at the expense of action, buildup at the expense of payoff.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

...leaves the audience up the creek without a paddle.

despite dead horses, crazed hicks and plagues of snakes, the only truly horrifying moment here is the hint at the end that there may be a sequel.

And as it progresses, the characters become so stupid that we lose interest in them.

Stephen Dorff is suitably intimidating as the film's scoundrel... "Hand that Rocks the Cradle" meets "Fatal Attraction"

Depending on your tolerance for such films, it'll either be easy or difficult to accept this unabashedly absurd story.

The underlining homoerotic subtext gets muddy, then washed away, in the creek.

One of those bad movies that will take its stars two good movies to recover from.

Try as it might to hold our attention, it disappoints at every turn, ending in a whimper rather than a bang.

Despite the film's predictability, there's something in the film that makes you want to root for the bad guy.

About as thrilling as cleaning out your garage.

I don't think there is even one thing that happens that I didn't foresee. It's the sort of movie that makes dumb guys like me feel smart.

Manor trickles along unconvincingly without once dispatching any genuine sense of supreme sadistic surprises. For this revelation alone, Cold Creek Manor certainly needs to be condemned.

'You should've stayed in New York,' Dorff warns, long before which the audience has realized it should've stayed home to snuggle up instead with Sam Peckinpah's Straw Dogs.
